Drop Morote Seoi Nage

The key is speed, not power!

Adonis Diaz is a National Judo Champion who is currently training to make the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. Drop Seionage is one of his best throws. He has thrown countless opponents in international judo competitions with this exact throw. Here are some of the key details that he does when he competes against a right-handed opponent. 

Start by controlling the end of your opponent sleeve and have the inside control.

Make sure you get your hips underneath your opponent. Also, notice that he only puts one knee down.

Explode in and in an upward direction. Do not bring your head straight down to the mat.

Notice the explosive power of Adonis! He drives up so much that his knee comes up off the floor and all his power is coming off that one foot planted on the ground.

Make sure you land with your back still on your opponent’s chest. Don’t let your opponent have to much space.

You don’t have to be overly powerful to get this technique to work. A lot of Adonis power comes from the speed at which he enters the throw.
